If you are coming from aromatics, you might want to
try Frog Morton. Many consider it a "crossover blend"
ie, it is a mild, somewhat naturally sweet but an
earthy English blend. As Ed says 965 is beloved by many,
personally I find it bland. But then I love spicy foods. My
suggestion would be to go to your local tobacconist and ask
for some small quantities and try them. Otherwise get
online and go to Cupojoes, they have ounce packages of
McClellands for under $2, and buy five or ten different
English blends, try tobacco direct. Or Contact Timstins,
he is a member here and sells tobacco, I am sure he
would be able to put you in the right direction. But
alas, it is a trial and error situation. Count on
kissing a lot of frogs before you find your proverbial
princess.<br>Come to our chats on Saturday night and we can help
you along a little more. In the meantime good luck
and may all your smoke rings be halos.<br>Marc
Thanks for the info. Ya know, for a medium it has a lot of flavor. I would have thought it was full strength. Makes me wonder what my reaction would have beenMessage 11222 of 11222 , Dec 25 4:29 AMView SourceThanks for the info. Ya know, for a medium it has a lot of flavor. I would have thought it was full strength. Makes me wonder what my reaction would have been towards the full strength? I like Latakia, but not to the point where it's all you can taste. I bought some C & D stuff, Odyssey - I think it's called, and I didn't care for it, but I used it as an inhancer for some blends I thought were lacking something and it was pretty good smoked that way.
